 Question 331766: we have a pile of dirt with the measurements of 26 ft wide base, 100 ft long, and 8 ft high, how do we measure this and turn it into cubic yards, this is more of a right triangle than triangleAnswer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!we have a pile of dirt with the measurements of 26 ft wide base, 100 ft long, and 8 ft high, how do we measure this and turn it into cubic yards, this is more of a right triangle than triangle 3 feett = 1yard 26 feet = 26/3 = 8.66 yards .. 100 feet = 100/3= 33.33 yards .. 8 feet = 8 / 3 = 2.66 yards .. Volume = 8.66*33.33*2.66 = 767.77 cu. yards .. This cannot be a triangle . triangle is two dimensional. this can be represented as a cuboid
